Add this to the list.

Here is yet another reason why knitting is completely and totally awesome to add to the already plentiful list. According to this article published by BBC News about a study done at the Mayo Clinic, knitting can delay memory loss. Or, phrased differently, it can delay the onset of dementia. Rock on, knitting!

Another point made in the article is that those who watch TV less than 7 hours a day are less likely to develop memory loss. What?!?! 7 hours a day is whole freaking lot of time in front of the TV. I would say that if you watch that much TV, you probably have bigger health issues than possible, future memory loss.

So, considering this new information, are there any non-knitters want me to teach them how to knit? Speak up!

  1. I finally got all the stuff together to start learning Crewel Embroidery. I hope it has the same positive affects as knitting! I'll let you know how it goes...
